Why Should I Add W8MD Weight Loss Program?
According to the CDC, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States during the past 20 years and rates remain high. More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese. Another 35% of the population is in the overweight category making the total of obese or overweight population to about 70% of the US population. Since Obesity is a chronic medical condition, the treatment of Obesity should be carefully monitored and administered by healthcare providers.
Cost of Obesity to the Society
In 2008, medical costs associated with obesity were estimated at $147 billion; the medical costs paid by third-party payors for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.
· Obesity-related medical costs are nearly 10 percent of all annual medical spending.
· Obesity is associated with lower productivity at work, costing employers $506 per obese worker per year.
· As an individual’s Body Mass Index (BMI) increases, so do the number of sick days, medical claims, and health care costs associated with that person.
Is there a market for Medical Weight Loss?
A recent U.S. government survey indicated that 50 percent of American adults felt their weight was too high and that 80 percent of the respondents intended to start a diet or fitness program within the next six months to correct their weight problem. This survey fact alone is reason enough to start a weight loss clinic. It is estimated that weight loss services generate over 55 Billion USD per annum in the United States.
